Make these ahead and freeze them so you'll never have to purchase those dreaded frozen things again!
Yield: 2-4 servings
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1”x3” strips
  • ⅓ cup natural cornflakes, crushed
  • 1 cup of pecan nuts, finely chopped
  • ⅛ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Salt to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine cornflakes, pecans, garlic powder and salt (I place all of it in a food processor and blend until crushed) into a gallon size Ziploc bag. Dip the chicken strips into the milk, then into the cornflake mixture, using your hands on the outside of the bag to press the coating into the chicken.
  3. Spray a cookie sheet with Pam or use Silicon pads. Arrange the breaded strips in a single layer and bake in the oven for about 6 minutes, turn and bake 5-6 minutes longer or until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the breading is nicely browned.
  4. Serve with rice, potatoes, or carrot sticks.
